3.0 out of 5 stars You know, for kids... 21 Nov 2007
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Irwin Allen's 1960 version of The Lost World may be shot in CinemaScope, but stylistically it fits right in with his 60s sci-fi TV shows (indeed, stock footage from the film found its way into his Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea series, as did co-star David Hedison). Originally intended to feature state-of-the-art stop-motion animation from Willis O. Brien, the special effects genius behind the groundbreaking 1925 version as well as King Kong, the ever-economical producer opted instead for the tried and trusted and, most important of all, much cheaper technique of supergluing fins and horns on real lizards and having them double for dinosaurs despite looking like nothing so much as lizards with fins and horns superglued on them. However, even had he spent the extra time and money, this modernised version was never going to be the definitive one: 'dinosaur' action is fairly thin on the ground and the novel's finale that sees a pterodactyl on the loose in London is unceremoniously dropped. Instead there's a lot of wandering around the Fox ranch and backlot, cameo appearances from the odd poisonous giant plant left over from Journey to the Center of the Earth, a tribe of natives with a yen for human sacrifice, a fortune in diamonds and the obligatory erupting volcano finale, though it retains a certain nostalgic Saturday kids matinée appeal even if most of today's kids wouldn't sit still for it. Claude Rains gets to grandstand as Professor Challenger while Michael Rennie's aristocratic big game hunter seems almost like a blueprint for George Lazenby's take on James Bond, with Jill St. John tagging along for no good reason other than Arthur Conan Doyle's thoughtless failure to provide any female roles in the original novel.

Fox's new Region 1 NTSC DVD boasts a fine 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to own it 13 July 2011
By A. W. Wilson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In all honesty I can't give this 5 stars. It's one of my personal favourites, and this print is wonderful, beautiful Scope, colour and sound (even if, as someone else mentions,the steeo seem to be reversed in some scenes). The trouble is that it is terribly dated, and I would think only appeals to viewers of a certain age (like me), and who have fond memories of it from the cinema (like me). Kids today wouldn't/couldn't sit through it, cos "Jurassic Park" it isn't! The humans are odd casting too. Claude Rains very wrong (but good-Margaret Rutherford was no Miss Marple, but boy was she fun), Jill St John is just - well awful, but looks great. Rennie/Hedison are just adequate, but it doesn't matter. It's still great fun for us oldies and highly recomended for same! You also get the original 1925 silent version, which I haven't watched on this DVD. I have it from Elstree Hill (I think) from some years ago. A bargain then. Go for it!
